Outer Banks Destination Wedding | Sanderling
Say Yes to the Dress
Tiffany and Ricky were married this weekend at the Sanderling Resort in Duck, NC. We’ve been looking forward to this wedding for a while, I met Tiffany earlier this summer when I shot her Sassybuns boudoir shoot as a groom gift surprise for Ricky. She is stunning! It’s so fun for us to hear back from groom his thought on the album!
Tiffany is part of TLC’s show Say Yes to the Dress! We’ve been mega exited to not only see the dress ourselves, but work with TLC’s video crew. Cannot wait to see the episode air!
We always look forward to shooting weddings at the Sanderling. It’s a resort we shoot at often and are always amazed at how each wedding is so different! Renee Landry Events did a fantastic job designing this wedding and with all the flowers!
The ceremony was held on the south event lawn. Tiffany walked though salvages doors and up to the deck over looking the ocean. Everything was full of fresh, lush green garlands and flowers. The family was seated on a mix matched set of chairs and couches that were vintage, fancy and eclectic! Renee has a fantastic vision and I’m constantly in awe of her working brain!
Tiffany’s gown was stunning! Lots of jewels and stones covering the entire dress. She had a two choices for shoes, but all agreed on the pink feathery Kate Spade heels.
The bridesmaids helped the father of the bride to tie his tie, along with youtube- and when that didn’t work, Tiffany helped. Still didn’t work so a call was put into the Sanderling and they finally got it tied! A few minutes later, we hear the same problem is going on with the boys getting ready over at the Caffey house. I keep telling myself that one of these days I will learn to tie one to help the fellas out!
Tiffany had the most gorgeous cathedral veil and blusher! So pretty! Such a classic look we do not see that often.
Ricky and Tiffany had told me they were doing a dove release from When Dove’s Fly. They also told me they were both pretty terrified by birds. Tiffany’s mom really liked the idea of the dove release, so I just told Tiffany to smile so we’d get great pictures. As you can tell, they clearly did not do that!! I love the look on the maid of honors face!!!
As the couple walked back down the aisle, attendants tossed little cups of fragrant lavender and blew bubbles. The couple surprised guests by showing up to the reception at the Pavilion on the soundside of the property by boat!
Just Desserts made a phenomenal cake with gems and bling all over it!
The sound gets the prettiest sunsets! The walk-way to the gazebo was lit with little café lights and tables were provided for guests to mingle outside and enjoy the view. A few clouds moved in which always held to hold the colors just a tiny bit longer.
The reception was a riot! Such a great group of dancers and DJ Bruce had everyone going hard! Lots of getting down and a few lifts too! Bouquet and garter tosses were hilarious! Ricky danced all the way to Tiffany and dropped and did a few push ups before grabbing the garter!
It was so fun working alongside some of our favorite OBX vendors!
Thanks Ricky and Tiffany for having Brooke Mayo Photographers capture your day!
